CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (AP) — A judge revoked $3 million bail for a former stockbroker who admitted conning the producers of a failed Broadway production of "Rebecca."
Mark Hotton pleaded guilty in July in separate federal court proceedings in Manhattan and on Long Island.
He admitted scamming Broadway producers of tens of thousands of dollars with promises to raise $4 million to save the ill-fated play.
On Long Island, he pleaded guilty to conspiring to launder the illicit proceeds of fraudulent activity from his work as a stockbroker.
Hotton had been free on bond awaiting sentencing. But prosecutors said he violated the terms of that release, including lying to officials about having been fired from a job.
Judge Joanna Seybert (SEE'-burht) ordered Hotton jailed until he's sentenced next February. He faces up to 20 years.
